"The wine opens with pretty aromas of passion fruit and orange peel. The flavors are clean and crisp as flashes of citrus grace the warm, tropical guava and honeydew. The palate has a subtle, yet substantial, complexity, balancing the bright acidity with weight and depth. Characteristic notes of fresh-cut grass carry throughout the palate, which finishes with a crisp snap of lime."
"Aromas of gooseberry and kiwi play nicely with flavors of lychee, lemongrass and ruby grapefruit. The wine was fermented in stainless stell tanks and neutral, 5- to 6-year-old French oak barrels. It was not allowed to go through malolactic fermentation in order to retain its crisp acidity."
"This wine is delicious with aromas and flavors of pink grapefruit, pineapple, lemon grass, lychee, kiwi, honeydew, orange blossom, guava, white peach and lemon lime with a touch of minerality. This wine has bright acidity and crisp freshness from the cool, stainless steel tank fermentation."
"Pours with a light, straw color with very pale green hue. It features a soft, fresh nose highlighted by grassy, herbal aromas and a hint of citrus -- lemon and yellow grapefruit. In taste, this Sauvignon Blanc stays true to its varietal roots, featuringa blend of flavors starting out grassy and herbaceous, but rounding out pleasantly with some melon and pear fruit flavor. Dry, moderately acidic, and well balanced. Nothing harsh or heavy; finishes crisply."
"Deep in hue with well developed, more concentrated flavors. Its fragrant honeysuckle and pineapple aromas add depth to this medium bodied wine. Fruit forward flavors of stone fruit, pear, and sweet citrus caress the palate with a soft approach."
"The most refreshing offering from Dark Horse, this Sauvignon Blanc offers bright aromas of grapefruit and gooseberry lined with fresh green notes. Layers of citrus and melon flavors create a crisp taste with medium viscosity and a long, refreshing finish"

Lively acidity accentuates the wine's flavor intensity and animates its long, harmonious finish, which features succulent citrus and mineral tones. Delicious now, this classic Napa Valley sauvignon blanc will age gracefully for the next 3-5 years, and beautifully accompany seafood, poultry, vegetable and salad dishes."
"Layers of delicious fruit flavors and a hint of fresh clover and lemon grass intermingle with aromas of citrus, melon and peach. Creaminess from sur lie aging provides depth on the palate followed by a crisp, perfectly balanced finish."
